I am a motivated person who keeps looking for new opportunities to expand my skillset and add value to myself as a person. I am result-oriented, not afraid to encounter issues that need creative solutions and can easily adapt to different situations.
In Juven I actively take part in several areas of the company. I started in business development with maintaining and cultivating long-term relationships with existing clients of the firm by managing the end-to-end sales process from new business pitching, proposal preparation to contract arrangement. I briefly supported the content marketing team in setting up a content creation plan, but I quickly found my main interest in managing client and stakeholder expectations by collaborating and communicating effectively with the product and business team. This role required me to support the product team to drive feature development in response to market potential and client requirements whilst monitoring and evaluating the product development; an area I am eager to grow in further.
Alongside the product development, I brought more structure to the daily operations of the company by supporting and driving better management of reporting, information flow, organisational planning and increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of Support Services (HR, IT and Finance).
Freelance writer As freelancer I have worked on projects that included drafting and editing health-related articles and chapters; managing and publishing content for on a healthcare website; planning and structuring an editorial plan and newsletter schedule.
Freelance web-developer I also contributed to projects where I designed, planned and implemented the website structure and additions, whilst maintaining and optimising the navigation layout with dynamic content, which included testing the website and content with multiple browsers and operating systems to ensure the best compatibility possible.
For my second research internship I decided to venture out to Hong Kong and work at the Prince of Wales Hospital at the department of orthopaedics and traumatology. During this internship I performed several literature searches and defined the research scope of my project. My project investigated the relationship between high glucose levels and tendinopathic changes in human hamstring grafts, by focussing on changes in molecular markers.
As part of my Master's programme I completed my first research internship at the University Medical Centre Utrecht at the department of orthopaedic research. In this internship I focused on optimising a 3D ex vivo bone marrow niche model in which I co-cultured different types of cells with haematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) in a hydrogel to assess which conditions retain the multipotency of the HSPCs the best.
I thoroughly enjoyed managing my own project and conducting research in the lab. During this internship, I learnt that I am someone who enjoys planning and organising and working according to a schedule. However, I also learnt that plans change due to a change circumstances, which taught me to be flexible and always be ready to adapt to the unplanned.
